Man critical after Sunday wreck
A Coleman man airlifted to a Flint hospital is in critical condition after a Sunday night crash that occurred in Jasper Township, while a Midland man remains hospitalized after he was struck by a car on Wednesday.
The Midland County Sheriff's Office reports Ryan Arnold Roman, 37, was one of six people hurt in the Sunday accident, which occurred at 6:16 p.m. Roman was driving a 2006 Chrysler Town and County van north on South Coleman Road when it was struck by a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, driven east on West Shepherd Road by Jody Anne Ackerman, 53, Shepherd.
Roman was airlifted to Flint's Hurley Medical Center from the scene.
Ackerman and the passengers in Roman's van, Michelle Marie Brown, 35, Moriah Christine Roman, 7, Aiden Timothy Roman, 2, and Emma Noelle Roman, 9, all of Coleman, were hurt. The report states they were taken to MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland for treatment. A hospital spokeswoman said Ackerman and all three children were treated and released. Brown is not listed as being a patient there.
A preliminary report on the accident states Ackerman told a deputy she forgot about the stop sign on West Shepherd Road. It also states no drugs or alcohol were involved.
An accident reconstructionist was called to the scene, and the roadway was closed from 8 until 10 p.m. The accident remains under investigation.
